Friday Fun: Meet Ginkgo Bioworks

This recruiting video for Ginkgo Bioworks* made the rounds a few years back, but some avid Twitter fans want me to re-post it, since Ginkgo seems to have some very interesting job descriptions on their Careers page (seriously, read the whole thing...)

I must admit, I love the cheesy public-domain elevator Muzak paired with the stereotypical 1950s fashion sense: girls in long skirts, guys in slacks and bow-ties. There's some cute site gags (DNA sequencing by typewriter) and cultural taboos (smoking at the bench!). 

It looks like they had a lot of fun making this video. Enjoy it . . .and maybe apply for a job!

Happy Friday,

*Despite my earlier misgivings, it seems they're a real company, based on the Boston waterfront.
